You've been fooed. The forum you posted in is for you to ask us or tell us things about the site ...

Personally, *IF* I was going to get certified. I would just buy the microsoft full on training books with their CBT's. Buy two or three crap computers for home and practice till I got all the information right. Then go spend 100$cdn to write the tests. MCSE is pretty simple stuff. There is also lots of "cheat" sheets and study preps available on torrent and other p2p sites. Don't spend the money, you really shouldn't need to.

The study-guides and courses isn't what does it. It's you studying the stuff, putting in your hours and hours, and going through the exercises and drills on real computers that helps you learn the info that passes the tests. The actual tests themselves are easy, basicly knowing your marketing info on which Microsoft products to use in any given scenario.

If you're short on cash and the course they are charging for is more then 500 bucks I'd seriously avoid it I've not had any good experience with any of these certification programs. Go out buy the book(s), use the software(s) and then pass the tests.
